Field size on forms in SD 4.5 SP17

Hi

How can I make fields larger.
I.e the Information field is
4 charaters high and 50 charaters wide
if I want to make this as 10 x 50
how do I do that?

Hi,

you do not have the option to resize fields. The larger 64k field can change in size due to how other attributes are presented on the form.

Michael,

To my knowledge, you are the first person to publically describe a way to change field size in OVSD forms.

It would be extremely helpful if you get back to this forum and report whether this solution works, or whether it has any knock-on effects.

Bravo,

Hi

It works

Otherwise I wouldn't have witten it :-)

I have also made a workaround so if more then one approvers (we have up to 10) let say 5 and the strategy is that 2 needs to approve it. If then 3 say "Not approved" and the 2 says "approve" it will be approved.
I made a rule so if 1 say no, the Change will be rejected.
and lots of other small ajustmets

Hello,

Actually it is the service information portal (SIP). This is using service pages for presenting tickets and creating new ones through a simple web interface.
